I wonder why democrats avoid explaining what they ARE doing. They just let constituents ask questions and then they give answers that seem designed to outrage the audience. Does anyone else see this?
Simple. Do you explain to your children what you are doing. You expect them to listen and obey.
How many times have you told your children when asked about something: "just do as you are told"
There's your answer. Our representatives think we are mostly proletariat and just need to be lead by the nose, they forgot they work for us.
The problem is our "representatives" live a bubble while in DC and forget there are actual adults in their districts that demand answers. Ask too many questions and the Union thugs put you in your place
So they are confronted by constituents, and lets keep the very clear...these people are constituents too, who have in fact read the horrifying bill. They don't know what to do or say...all they have are Nancy Pelosi’s talking points.
A smart democrat would drop the talking points, read a few conservative blogs, read the bill, and hold informed town halls at the end of August.
We don’t need to ask questions of these morons. We need to tell them what to do. And punish them if they disobey us.

You have to understand the position of not all, but most democrat representatives.
You see, they (most) are in the awkward position of serving two masters.
On the one hand, they serve their constituents and thus feel compelled to at least appear to be listening to their needs and concerns... and if opposition is strong enough, to change their position to salvage their job.
On the other hand, they serve a legislative body and executive power which has long since discarded the concepts of the constitution, and are doing everything in their power to undermine it and replace it with a system which guarantees them power and position indefinitely.
I seriously believe that the best response to this blatant disregard for honest representation is a massive recall initiative. If they dont want to listen to us, and side with the president when he tells us to “get out of the way”, then it is quite simply time to recall our representatives... TO HELL WITH WAITING FOR 2010!
FIRE THEIR BUTTS NOW!
Then maybe we can avoid this catastrophy.
I don’t think it would take many firings to do the job.
But they better happen quick.
I was just thinking that. They are setting it up to make the right wing kooks look bad for the national media. Voila, health care will seem like a good thing to the masses. Perception is an amazing concept.
